RV Domicile: A Complete Guide

Learn everything you need to know to about how to establish domicile for full-time RV living.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines domicile as “a person’s fixed, permanent, and principal home for legal purposes.”

RV domicile refers to the place full time RVers legally define as their home, when they do not have an actual house.

Homeschooling rules, tax rates health insurance options and vehicle regulations are all controlled by your domicile state and county.

There is no best state for RV domicile, but a few popular options are Florida, South Dakota and Texas.

In addition to popular domicile states, future full time RVers should also consider domicile in their current state.

If a new full time RVer wishes to change their domicile, they will need to take several steps to establish domicile in their new state.

These steps include acquiring an address, registering vehicles, obtaining health insurance and filing an affidavit of domicile.

Once you have selected your desired state for RV domicile, hire an attorney from that state to review your case.
